The Delaware National Guard has been a member of RideShare Delaware since December 2008. Throughout the years, RideShare Delaware and the Delaware National Guard have built their partnership through the continued presence of RideShare and the free benefits that RideShare offers the men and women of the DE National Guard. Just this past December, the Delaware National Guard moved up the rank of Bronze RideShare Partner to a Gold RideShare Partner, which is the highest partnership level. The importance of this Gold Partnership Level shows that the Delaware National Guard is committed to offering and encouraging clean commute transportation options for the men and women who serve the National Guard. Danielle Martin, RideShare’s Onsite Transportation Coordinator and the Mass Transit Coordinator, has been a pivotal initiator of building the relationship between RideShare and the DE National Guard. Several initiatives that boosted the DE National Guard RideShare partnership are as follows:
– Encouraging and hosting Vanpool Formations
– RideShare and VRide presentations twice a year
– RideShare attends the DE National Guard Wellness Fair for all employees
– Monthly RideShare presentations during the In-Processing Trainings
– Promoting commute options through postings, emails, flyers
– Federal employees and state employees receive a transit subsidiary
The Delaware National Guard also received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification for 2015 at the Major Joseph R. “Beau” Biden III National Guard/Reserve Center. The LEED Certification is one of the most popular green building certification programs used worldwide, that requires buildings to meet a set of rating systems that aim to make the building environmentally responsible and efficient.
RideShare Delaware wants to thank the DE National Guard for their continued and active support in their role for helping to make the State of Delaware a cleaner environment. Also, by offering the many free benefits that RideShare Delaware offers, the National Guard represents a strong commitment to the transportation needs of the men and women who travel to the different locations throughout Delaware. We at RideShare Delaware look forward to continuing our partnership with the Delaware National Guard through 2017.
Also in 2015 the Delaware National Guard celebrated it’s 361st year!
Happy 361st Birthday to the Delaware National Guard! We thank the National Guard, the citizen soldiers, and airmen for your service and protection!
